The freed aid worker had since called home to confirm her release.

The elated mother said to journalists: “I am very happy, I am grateful to God and everybody who helped. I was in church and had to put off my phone. But Jennifer has called and spoken with her elder sister that she has been released. I’m so grateful to God. Thank you everyone.”
